Our kids are rotten.

So my friend Gloria and I were talking on the phone during our hour long commutes about our grown children who lack goals and live day to day. We both concluded that they were too spoiled and we should have let them suffer more when they were young.

We compare ourselves to other people who let their kids run the streets, stay home alone at a young age for long periods of time, lived in the hood paying less expensive rents and their children tend to work harder, look forward to furthering their education and other long-term goals.

What the hell did we do wrong?! How could that be?! We could've saved ourselves a lot of money instead of sending them to day camps where you had to pay extra to be able to pick them up after work during the summer. I could've slept in on weekends as opposed to getting up early going to sports games, then the usual afternoon birthday party(+ gift money for some other bratty kid from school that you could care two shits about) to come home too tired to drive into the city for a nice dinner and drinks or to take a bath without having to be worried about what to do with a child who's overly stimulated due to too many birthday treats. I've been doing this for so long, I have a hard time sleeping past 7am on the weekends or during vacations.

So, we've started an experiment. The next child goes to an at-risk public school, can stay out after the lights come on, is a latchkey kid at 7 years old, can drink sodas at any time of night, spends most of the time watching t.v., rides in the back of the station wagon without a seatbelt, wears shoes until holes wear through the bottoms and patched knees on their pants, will only go to the doctor for vaccinations (after the school has put them out) or they're coughing up a lung...
Good afternoon ladies...


With the summer now on us, I was hoping to plan a few events to get us together socially...

Cookout? naw...
Dinner party? Nope
How about a card party?
Gamble, drink, I take your money... you know stuff like that

Interested?
Let's do it...
